And just when you thought you'd never hear from this blog again....

(Hi! Remember me?)

Yes! The blog is still alive and kicking. (Well, maybe not kicking.) Its even got a smashing new outfit, and I'd like it to have a new name... but I haven't thought of a new name yet. Any ideas out there?

I know you haven't heard from this blog in ages and ages... and really... I have no good excuse. I just never really found the time. Now that I'm firmly back on Canadian soil, I can't really promise to become a diligent blogger again, but I do like the idea of of blogging in earnest once more. And after all, it is the thought that counts, right?

This last couple of months of my travels were non-stop busy; from working almost ever single day in July, to my Eurorail European non-stop extravaganza in August, and then tossing myself head long into full-time University in September, I've never seemed to find a minute to sit down and update the blog. I had this idea that when I moved back to Canada I'd have loads of time to share stories and update, but of course, that never seemed to be the case. So now its winter break and a perfect time to finally try and update this blog at least a little and share some photos.

As always I'm stuck with the idea of where I should begin. Perhaps the best place to begins is with with the sort of present and some pictures of my life back at home.

... starting with the flight home ...

This next set are from a trip up to Lake Clear on Thanksgiving. I'd really missed the Canadian autumn colours, especially the colours around the lake.
